"D7000 questions."


Houston, Texas, US
          

When using a non cpu lens, does iTTL flash work? Does this body have AF fine tune? How many non cpu lenses can you enter? It looks like there may not be a replacement for the D300(s), at least not anytime soon, so maybe I should look into a D7000 for a second body.

So many cameras, so little time....

I don't have any non-CPU lenses, but the manual seems to suggest it should if you enter the focal length and f-stop information.

> Does this body have AF fine tune?

Yes it does.

>How many non cpu lenses can you enter?

Up to 9.

I've used iTTL flash with non-cpu lenses, it works fine.

Today I was in the local camera shop. An employee said the D7000 and 7100 must have AIS lenses to meter and AI lenses will not. I don't see how that could be possible. The little scoop cut out on the AIS lenses mean nothing to today's bodies.

It isn't possible - you were misinformed at the shop.

AI and AI-S will offer exectly the same metering capabilities on a D7000 (or D7100) - i.e. you get Spot, CW or Colour Matrix (but not 3D Colour Matrix), in Aperture Priority or Manual. Just add the lens details to the Non-CPU Lens section via the menus

Bill, you won't have any problem using your AI or AIS lenses in iTTL mode. But you may see a difference in which iTTL mode you use. With the cameras metering set to Matrix or Center weighed, a flash like the D800 or D900 will go into balanced fill flash, iTTL-BL. In this mode the flash, body and distance info from a D or G lens will try and balance the background of the scene to the main target. With a non-CPU lens there is no distance info available so the exposure may not be perfect. In many cases I get under exposure using iTTL-BL mode.

If you put the cameras meter in Spot mode, iTTL-BL is disabled and the flash goes into standard iTTL mode. In this mode I find my flash exposures are much more accurate when using non-CPU lenses. This seems to be true if I use a D300, D700, D3X or D800. I don't have a D7000/D7100 yet but plan to replace my D300 with the D7100.
